The union's insurance policy covers only victims held captive for eight hours or more.Before any quick “hey, rules is rules” dismissals, you might be interested to know:
A waiver could have been issued if the Civil Service Employees Association's executive board had approved the victim's request.So why wasn’t it?
On Monday, CSEA spokesman Steve Madarasz said the incident did not meet the criteria of the hostage insurance policy.Well, that certainly explains it.
"Obviously, this was a very unfortunate incident," he said, but declined further comment.
I guess next time Ms. Uppity gets beaten, kidnapped, and raped, she’ll think twice about escaping her captor two hours before the compassion kicks in.
